How do we work?
It all starts with inspiration. It can capture us during a trip, a visit to a museum, an excursion into nature.

Shapes, colours, materials, works of art strike our imagination and then give rise to a search, sometimes a sketch, often several, then to the transposition into a grid, as far as the weaving of pearls is concerned. Our visit to the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon, for example, left a lasting impression on us for our creations inspired by the decorative arts of the Far East.
Our materials: fine stones and noble metals
Gemstones are a source of infinite inspiration: variety of colours, shapes and sizes; play of light, transparency or opacity, they are a playground that never ceases to dazzle us. We associate them with 925 silver or 14-carat gold filled. It is a 14-carat gold finish applied on a brass base. The weight of gold corresponds to 1/20 (5%) of the total weight of the product, which is about 50 to 100 times more than in a gold-plated product. Much more resistant than a classic gold plated product, a gold-filled product has the same properties as a solid gold jewelry: it does not oxidize, limits the risk of allergic reaction and does not tarnish. It will last a lifetime under normal conditions of use.
Japanese glass beads tinted or plated with 24-carat gold or 925 silver are ideal for weaving. Bead weaving, an art of patience typically Gaman'[がまん, patience, perseverance, dedication], our jewellery often requires several hundred beads woven one by one by hand. From inspiration to realization, many steps are necessary:
We select our raw materials carefully, from French suppliers as much as possible. For our "Fine stones" range, we prefer to work with noble metals such as solid silver (925/1000) without nickel, gold filled 14 carats, fine stones and natural cultured pearls.
